Me toooooo....I'm just packing Crimbo in a box to go to my poor friend marooned in Florida. You wouldn't believe the stuff the septics don't have....plain flour, glace cherries, salt and vinegar crisps, Remegels ( :lol: ), Christmas pud, crackers, sultanas, sherbet fountains, Cadbury's, stilton....the place is a cultural desert. AND their robins are deformed - I had to find a proper shaped one for the top of her cake. So what with that and having had a flurry of Christmas shopping on QVC AND having booked in all my Christmas church service organ gigs, I'm feeling v. festive now. Nuts, anybody? :mrgreen:

She gets proper English telly beamed in or something; septic telly is dreadful, apparently - makes ours look like Nobel winning stuff!

Tell 'em Father Christmas doesn't come to naughty cats.
Bad news re your poor neighbour; but my brother was made redundant at 60 this April and has just got a job with a local firm who are 'fed up with useless graduates'. There is hope out there.

My customer gave me a confection she made up herself - a cross between a mince pie and an Eccles cake...we called it a mincle pie. It was v.v. good!

Krakow is amazing Dave Brum, I went last year in April and experienced Auschwitz, and wow what an experience, I've never felt such sadness in all of my life, I couldn't comprehend how cruel the human race can be!The city itself is very old and so beautiful, I would highly recommend going if you get the chance!

Well you can always quote the pissed Bishop of (I think) Southwark; 'Because I'm a Bishop and this is what Bishops do...' as you throw stuff around drunkenly... :mrgreen: Have a merry one, everyone!
